Helpful: Arcade Fire concert review

The group that gave the best performance of Lollapalooza backed it up with an amazing show last night at the sold-out Riviera. Working Hitz joined me.

I'm not so good with remembering set lists, but Arcade Fire played just about everything off of Funeral and the best tracks from their first EP. The 9-piece band (including violins, accordion, French horn and "helmet") overwhelmed us with sound and energy, to the point where I really believed they would pass out. But they kept going, to our delight.

"We found the light!"

Update: Here's the review of the show from the Onion A.V. Club.
